When: Sunday May 01, 2011

Block dress: Conway (Panama)

Brown wedges: Payless Shoe Source
Purse: I've had it since I was a little girl.
Monkey Betsey Johnson ring:

My family and I drove up to our country house in the mountain area.

As I have said before, I really love going to my family's country house... Since it's sorda up a mountain, it's so much cooler than usual Panama weather. Usually I get a really good night's sleep here, but today was sorda an exception. The thing is that it is beetle season, so there are soooo many big nasty beetles everywhere!!

All of these beetles where particularly interested in coming into me and my sister's room (They probably secretly know that I don't like bugs and they just wanted to torment me).

Anyway, they would fly around like crazy and my sister and I would swap them down with shoes and books... hahaa, it was sorda funny really! My sister and I say we are beetle hunters since we got rid of like 20 beetles throughout the night! hahaha.

I ended up sleeping with the covers pulled all the way over my face in what I like to call the Mummy sleep. It was a little hot being entirely under the covers, but at least I was safe from the bugs all night ;)

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this block dress:
